Man has hard service on earth with months of futility and nights of misery. His body was clothed with worms and scabs. His days were swifter than a weaver's shuttle and come to an end without hope (Job 7:1-6). People experience misery, futility and hopelessness in their short lives.
His life was but a breath that would never see happiness again. He complained bitterly and preferred death rather than this body. He despised his life because his days had no meaning. God examined and tested him every moment so he became a burden to himself. Why did God not pardon and forgive his sins since he would die soon? (Job 7:7-21). People despise a life without meaning and wish God would forgive their sin since death comes quickly.
God gave children over to the penalty of their sin. He would rouse Himself and restore you to your rightful place if you plead to Him with a pure heart. Beginnings seemed humble but the future would be prosperous (Job 8:1-7). People who seek God from a pure heart have a prosperous future.
Fathers would teach and provide understanding if younger people asked them. Those who forget God lose hope. What the godless trust in would not stand or endure. Their lives withered away like a plant torn away from rocks. God did not reject a blameless man but filled his mouth with joy and clothed his enemies in shame (Job 8:8-22). People who forget God lose hope and wither away but the blameless have joy and protection from enemies.
How can man be righteous before a wise God who moves mountains, shakes the earth, made stars and performs countless miracles. Because no one knew what God was doing, a person could not argue with Him. One could plead with his Judge for mercy but his wounds would be multiplied without reason and be pronounced guilty. Job said God destroyed both the blameless and the wicked. Days flew by without joy. One cannot have an independent umpire between himself and God. Job asked someone to remove His rod so He could speak without terror and fear (Job 9:1-24). No one knows what God is doing because it appears He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.
Job spoke out about his bitterness along with the condemnation and oppression he felt from God. Would God destroy Job by turning him into dust? He knew that God would not allow his sin to be unpunished. Job wished he never had been born because of the deep shame and lack of joy (Job 10:1-22). People experience bitterness, condemnation and shame in deep trials.
In your trials, are you forgetting God or seeking Him? By seeking Him, you will have a prosperous future, joy and protection from enemies.
